Tom Anderson Icon Classic - Sonic Blue w/Brown with Hard Shell Case

Tom Anderson Icon Classic - Sonic Blue w/Brown

 

Nowhere near a copycat of any kind Icon lifts you on wings of unprecedented playability tonality and resonance that are really astounding. Giant vintage tones resound beyond normal expectations and unlimited string bends aboundpush em as far as you can pushstill ringing out. So truly satisfying to play! Yes Icon is in production and it is magnificent. It is the no compromise vintage guitar. But Icon does it in a totally iconic way and with no vintage compromises. Icon has the look but not the limited playability so all the Anderson attributes are soundly intact with the vintage visual attractions of:

Full-sized S-style body silhouette

Top Jack

Three numbered knobs

One rear strap button

This particular Icon boasts a Swamp Ash body in a seriously unique satin Organic Grain Sonic Blue/Brown finish. Ashhas a rather scooped out midrange tone with a robust low low end and beautifully musical sparkling highs. Anderson opts for Swamp Ash in particular - It is lighter in weight and more porous producing a timbre that is usually richer and less harsh than heavier ash. A super musical and multifaceted tone emphasizing an abundance of soft sparkling high end and rich low-low end frequencies.

At the neck you'll find an HC 1- humbucker -a succulent and sweet and clear neck humbuckerthroaty and full neck humbucker tones we all love without being overly bloated. In the middle a VA7.2R. Its slightly reduced pole piece stagger welcomes a fuller bottom end with less potential for string rattle and tacks on a slightly fatter hotter output than the standard VA7. At the bridge is an HC1+ for vintage level output and signature with a voice of mid-centered perfection surrounded by soft articulate upper-mids and highs.

The neck is Anderson's Even Taper +.030 - asleek and fast silhouette with not a lot of depth change from the nut to the 12th fret. As your hand slides to the upper frets playing feel and depth remain relatively the same. The "+.030" makes the measurements.840" at the first fret to .900" at the 12th.The wedge neck pocket provides more contactareabetween neck & body and literally locks the neck in place.

 

Another winner from the AGW benches and as usual we're not surprised.
